Geocache Description:

  A l'extrême ouest de la France  

The cache is located at the extreme west end of metropolitan France (island included!) in a beautiful or frightful landscape depending whether you go there by land or by sea.

From the location of the cache, one can see two lighthouses, the Creach that is one of the most powerful in the world and the Nividic that required a specific system of electrical supply.

To go to the spot on the Pern area of the Ouessant island, plan a full day from the Conquet harbour (N48 21.565 W4 46.792) to enjoy the trip and walk the scenic coastal paths of the island.

The cache is reached by climbing rocks that can be dangerous when wet.

La cache est situé à l'extrémité occidentale de la France métropolitaine, à la pointe du Pern, sur l'ile de Ouessant, Finistère.

Le site de la cache donne sur deux phares emblématiques de cette côte redoutée des marins, celui du Creac'h, l'un des plus puissant du monde et celui de Nividic qui nécessita la mise en place de spectaculaires pylônes électriques.

Pour trouver cette cache et en profiter pour visiter l'île, compter un journée entière au départ du Conquet (N48 21.565 W4 46.792).
